UI not updated with new scripts/schedules when added directly to config files

@adam I’m building out some automation which will automatically add new jobs from zip packages to UA. I know there is the API, but I’m looking at adding the scripts by adding lines to the config files themselves if at all possible. I am able to make the changes to the files, but it seems like the UI never updates with these new values.

If need be, I can use the API calls, but this seemed like a reasonable way to do things on the back end.

EDIT: I’m a dummy - was a syntax error in files.

That should work. There is a file system watcher that runs when changes are made to the files. Can you check the log to see if there are any errors reported during reload?

You know what… I’m dumb. It was a bug of mine :man_facepalming: but the errors in the logs did reveal why it was failing. That said, I am still seeing that folders.ps1 error.

For anyone else who might find it useful, I’ve got this little function to force updates of the configuration files:

function Update-UniversalConfigs {
	param (
	$ConfigurationUri = '{0}/api/v1/configuration' -f $ServerUri
	Write-Output 'Updating Universal Config Files...'
	Invoke-RestMethod $ConfigurationUri -Method POST -Headers @{ Authorization = "Bearer $AppToken" }
	Write-Output 'DONE!'
